Honey Glazed Radishes

Honey Glazed Radishes

I’m feeling so French right now! I was inspired by Laura Calder’s show on the Cooking Channel called French Food at Home. She made sugar glazed radishes with butter which looked so tasty I thought I’d give it a go. Mine have olive oil instead of butter and honey in lieu of sugar. So good! … Continue reading

Asparagus, Potato, Goat Milk Brie Cheese Frittata

If you are like me and can’t really tolerate cow’s milk cheese and are unfortunately still obsessed with cheese well you should do yourself a favor and get some goat’s milk Brie cheese.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

I realized today that I have never had tortilla soup. Every time I see it on a menu it has chicken in it and considering I’ve been a vegetarian for more than half my life I just sorta gave up hope. That is until today when I bought the March issue of Everyday with Rachael … Continue reading

Turnip Oven Fries

Turnip Oven Fries

Breakfast Napa Style

Breakfast Napa Style

This weekend I picked up a few goodies while visiting Napa. We visited Model Bakery which was featured on Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate for their famous English muffins. Do yourself a favor and try one when you are in Napa. Soooooo good. We also spent some time in Michael Chiarello’s NapaStyle … Continue reading

On Saturday, I turned 30. And as much as one would normally dread this birthday, I was looking forward to mine for weeks. My sister and I spent the weekend in Napa, CA. It was our very first time. We knew it would be as much about the food as it would be about the … Continue reading
